Fractal Design Newton R3 & Tesla R2 1000w PSU Review
Fractal design is well know for its PC cases, and yes they are quite phenomenal. Today we take a look at other PC component aspects from Fractal-design, naming the Newton R3 & tesla R2 1000w Power Supply Units. The Newton R3 retails for about $229 & the Tesla R2 retails for $139.
The Fractal Design NEWTON R3 Series power supply units (PSUs) provide clean power efficiently and silently. The NEWTON R3 is the ultimate choice for demanding high-end gaming computers and ultra-quiet media PCs,Newton R3 Series PSUs meet the highest efficiency specifications currently available for consumer-grade power supplies. This efficiency produces both positive environmental impact, as well as reduces electricity bills. Additionally, because the Newton R3 Series PSUs generate less heat, they provide power at lower fan speeds, which results in reduced noise levels. With the exception of a few, all cables on the Newton series power supplies can be detached from the PSU unit. This reduces the clutter, assists with a clean installation and improves the airflow in the computer case. Newton R3 Series PSUs are equipped with a 700mm long 12V (“P4”) connector cable, which accommodates bottom-mounted-PSU computer cases. As you would expect, the Newton R3 Series PSUs are tested and certified compatible with the latest graphics cards. More technical specs here
Fractal Design TESLA R2 Series power supply units provide clean power efficiently and quietly. The TESLA R2 is an excellent choice for demanding high-end gaming computers and powerful workstations. Tesla R2 Series PSUs feature excellent DC voltage regulation and ripple suppression; they can deliver their full-rated wattage continuously even with an intake temperature as high as 40°C (80% of maximum load at 50°C). Generally, larger fans move more air with less noise than smaller fans: Tesla R2 Series PSUs are equipped with a large, low-speed, 135 mm fan, which keeps noise level down. Tesla R2 Series PSUs (650W and up) are tested and certified compatible with the latest graphics cards. More technical Specs here
Both Power supplies are great performers and add the engine backbone to any build. I would full recommend the Netwon R3 or Tesla R2 to any PC builder. Stay tuned as we feature the two PSUs in our PC builds.
